Quick and Simple Necklace Craft for Dolls

Bitty #3 modeling the necklace.
Early in the morning today, my daughter and her little friend were quite touchy with their hands.  I decided that we would do a little craft with beads before our littlest friend (who is one) arrived to keep our hands busy.  Although we made the necklaces for the dolls, the girls decided that they wanted to wear them as "arm bands" most of the morning because they were modeling. :)

Quick an Simple Necklace for Dolls:

Items Needed:
 -Pipe Cleaners
-Beads (that have holes in the middle large enough for the pipe cleaners to fit through.)

Getting to Work: 
Step 1:  Tie a knot in you pipe cleaner to keep the beads from falling off.  I did this in two different ways-one: I tied the knot very close to one end of the piper cleaner and two: I tied the knot about a third of the way in on the pipe cleaner for different looks.
Step  2: String beads of your choice of color and pattern onto the pipe cleaner. 
Step 3:  Tie a knot at the other end of the pipe cleaner.  Again, either close to tie at the very end or about a third of the way into the pipe cleaner.
Now, just place on your doll and twist the pipe cleaner to fasten!
